ID: VSN Aug 2010 - Scoring  - Small Star
5"w  x 7"h

Created: August 14, 2010
This is my submission for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the October 2010 issue with the theme of "Your favorite scoring tool". Mine happens to be the Scor-It board. Love it. And in making these cards I realized it has an advantage over the ScorPal. With the ScorPal your lines are formed within a grove, whereas with the Scor-It your lines are formed on top of a stainless steel rule, so you can use it as a support if you want to sand your line down, which is something I did on this card.


I scored and folded a plain white card. Then embossed a piece of silver metallic cardstock using the Crafts Too stars folder, and layered it onto my main card, edge to edge.

I sponged and and also direct to paper, on white cardstock using Distress Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire to get a dark blue and then added touches of Worn Lipstick, misted and dried. Scored all around 1/2" in from the edges and sanded each back to the white core while still on the rule.

Attached, temporarily, my blue piece to a piece of tracing paper, to position a cut out star, which I traced onto the tracing paper. This is my guide for scoring. Also sanded at the same time.

Painted the star with Jo Sonja's Opal Dust - interesting medium, not similar to iridescent medium at all. Let that dry.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with Perfect Medium and embossed with silver. Tied a couple strands of silver metallic embroidery thread and tied a knot, Also punched a couple nicks on each edge to hold the thread in place. Trimmed the ends short and added a dab of glue to hold the knot. Adhered this layer to the main card on top of the silver metallic stars. Then added a rhinestone star.
